At Namm 2022, Adamson’s Fletcher Machine, their new spatial mixing engine, was given a public showing following its launch at InfoComm 2022. The GUI for the ‘Traveller model’ is shown in this post, along with a prototype.
The Adamson Fletcher Machine, a completely new development in object-based mixing, uses amplitude and time localisation to ensure that objects are clearly perceived at their intended location, giving the listener a more direct connection with the music. The rendered signals sent to the loudspeakers are calculated from the point of view of the object, ensuring the best spatial coherence for the majority of listening positions.
The Stage Unit is a 3U 19″ rack-mount that can control 64 or 128 inputs and outputs, while the Traveller Model can handle 32 or 64 inputs and 32 outputs.
Hardware configurations in AVB/MADI or Dante audio at 48 or 96 kHz are available for each of these. Latency is kept to an astonishingly low 1.33 milliseconds in all configurations.
